“The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

August 5, 2021

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika by Belinda Davids

August 2, 2021

“I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities.”

July 1, 2021

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

I was in my first job and still remember vividly police chasing students from my office at the top of Adderley St near the Cathedral in St Georges St – the first stirrings of my “political conscience”. Think I wrote about it in my very first manuscript, How a South African “Moegoe” * became “politically aware”

I think the students were protesting the death (“suicide”) of Ahmed Timol at John Vorster Square in 1971
